's lead, obama care plus success equals one massive right wing freakout. president obama's health care law is working. and many on the right just can't handle it. here's what i'm talking about. >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. that's the reason he's mourned today because of that struggle he performed. bu
-- >> i want to hear the governor here. >> it's down to pre-stimulus levels and heading in the right direction. >> despite obama. the sequester, by the way, is less than 1% of total federal spending. if we think this nation cannot tighten its belt, then we should give up. >> david, go ahead and get in here. >> what you have recited as the way to go forward is what we have done for the past 30 years, which is cut taxes on the wealthy, cut regulations on business, and it's proven to be a failure. that's where the direction -- that's why you've been so opposed to the president's plan. it is a reversal of where we failed. >> how can you claim we have rereduced regulation, whether it's under president bush or president obama. there's been an explosion of regulation burden. >> that's what we are starting to reverse. we are starting to create the conditions for a prolonged expansion. it is far too weak, i agree with you on that point. we have the agreement here. >> i would start with expansion. >> listen, the governor brought up raising the minimum wage. i want to ask you about that. becaus
are seeing $15 an hour and a right to form a union. in washington president obama is making income in equality one of the pieces of his second term agenda. >> the idea that a child may never escape that poverty because she lumberjacks a decent education or a health care or a community that views her future as their own it should offend all of us. the combined trends of declining mobility it poses a threat to our way of life. what drives me as a zbroond, a son, a father, as an american is to make sure that every striving hard-working optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> the current minimum wage is $7.25, adjusted for inflation. that's more than $3 less than the minimum wage was back in 1968. president obama said he'll support a senate bill to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 but not going to be easy. >> what would the prospects of that be not only in the senate but the house? >> they are not good. it would be easier to do that than to increase taxes on the wealthy at this point in time because that's been ruled off the table by co
prerogative. very similar to what president obama is claiming, the right of the game to essentially stand above the law to reform the law to the kings views. i'm not saying that president obama is a monarch but that was the issue that gave the impetus to this clause, in my view. the language did not change very much. later, people like benjamin -- the dispensing power of the president. he wrote a very good paper about when the president can refuse to enforce laws. he basically said he could only be done -- they could only be done when there's intrusion upon executive power. by the way, that's was involved in the myers case we talked about, referred to earlier. or if it was clearly unconstitutional, and that second issue, established had to be very, very clear so the president does not exercise that authority. this is a i would respond. we don't have to hyperventilate to look any problem and take it is not about who the president it today or what he's trying to achieve. what is lacking from the other side is any notion of what the world will look like in a tripartite system if the presiden
was a communist, this man. he was a communist. >> i would make the argument that we have a great injustice right now in the country with an ever-increasing size of government that's taking over and controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south a
in the system, maybe so. >> all right, ainsley, very informative. >> now the problems with obama care, they extend way beyond the website and the glitches and the americans, people all across the country, they're being now forced to face the reality of the real negative impact with this law. my next guest says his little 18-month-old daughter was almost the latest victim of obama care when he tried to sign up for a plan when he received notices his current plan was canceled. he was told they would have to buy a separate plan for his daughter until she was 2 years old. he got a call saying oops, it was all a mistake. she would be covered. so i read your story. you are one of millions of oamericans you got a cancellati cancellation. >> about 12 months ago, we received a cancellation notice that our policies would no longer be offered in the markplace. so my wife and i, i'm a small business owner and my wife is self-employed as well. she and i went out in search of a new policy. we scrambled, we found one. that lasted about another 11 months. >> so you went on the website. >> not yet. we
, that op-ed he wrote is an early shot. another piece you have up there this morning, president obama juggling legislative issues right now. republicans, though, going back after health care as we head into 2014. that's really where the focus is going to be for his opponents, isn't it? >> sure s. willie the white house got more excited reaction from liberals, the left democrats and maybe they expected earlier this week when they said on "morning joe" that every day this month up until the deadline that the president was going to be focusing on health care. people got very excited about it. the supporters loved it. but the president has a lot else on his plate. this is a multi-tasking month today. the president is talking about income in equality at 11:15. he will be talking about immigration he has foreign policy and heads up to hawaii at the end of the month. the president has a ton going on t. supporters think there is good news, maybe the website is steadying now want more of the president every day. >> obviously, the republicans will not let up despite they may be setting up polit
washington. >>> president obama is making a long trip from washington to south africa to honor civil rights legend nelson mandela. tomorrows memorial service will serve as a rare reunion of nearly all of the living american presidents. kpix5 is in the news room now and the number of dig any tar its i imagine is giving south african police quite a security challenge. >> reporter: yes, frank. more than 80,000 mourners are expected to attend the memorial and thousands of police officers will be on hand and right now a memorial outside nelson mandela's former home is growing as well as a crowd of south africans who have come together since his death. >> police are preparing today for a memorial service for nelson mandela at a soccer stadium tomorrow. president obama leaves this morning for south africa where he will attend the massive public memorial. former presidents bush, clinton and carter will also be in attendance along with more than 50 heads of state, making it one of the largest gatherings the world leaders in recent history. >> this is a test for us. >> the head of south africa's nati

to pass a budget, right? the effects of obama care have yet to sink in. so you would -- you understand consumers are a little nervous and don't want to spend as much money. >> right. i think those consumers who have jobs, who are lucky enough to have money in the stock market which is soaring, who are relieved that the value of their house is going up, those upper-end consumers will probably spend pretty readily and i expect the retailers who serve them will see a pretty good christmas. people who serve that mass market where wages haven't been rising, you're right, people may have some anxiety about health care, i think they're less worried about the budget than their paychecks and health care, those retailers have to work hard to get people to spend. >> you've touched on something, you know. the stock market is on fire. banks are profitable. the upper 1% doing just fine. so is this just the story of the american economy? >> it is definitely one story of the american economy. i think you're starting to see more political angst about this. i mean, all across the country in these little
. that was barack obama in january of 2008. we have a chart of electricity prices right now if we can. they are right now believe it or not at all time highs. people and not talking about it but they will soon. interestingly at the end of the day the epa a cash am out with an announcement that they will be flexible on these new rules and will give states greater with respect to this stuff. going higher and higher and other things going on in the economy, maybe they will pull back a little bit and that will be good for these coal companies particularly natural resources, today it is a 75% even before this news i thought they were turning the corner, they weather the storm. next year fiscal year the consensus is the will make $2.03, two month ago the consensus was $1.25, wall street is coming around to the idea that the bottom line which we know a lot of that was cost savings and things like that but maybe they weathered the storm. this stock is off to the races. lori: what about the fundamentals, the seasonality, the supply, the potential for further exploration of other energy sources
. >> and a shocking story from the latest victims of obama care. >> i thought it was a glitch. >> "hannity" starts right here, right now. welcome to "hannity." tonight the deadline has passed. despite the administration saying health care.gov works, quote, smoothly for the vast majority of use rs that's not true. there are still glitches when americans try to sign up for obama care on oh line and even death panel sebelius admits it's true, sort of. in usa today she wrote, for those who prefer to shop online you may want the to visit health care.gov in off-peak hours when there is less traffic. morning, evenings, weekends. have your information ready and comparison shop for the best deal. that doesn't sound fixed to me. we want to test it so back with us again trying to sign up for obama care. she's been trying all day. the co-host of "fox & friends" first. >> we have had producers here trying to get on the website today. one of the producers got on and it has to be during off peak times. basically you have to wait here. we'll make sure there is room for you to have a good experience on our site. h

's utterly embarrassing for the president not to have put together the right technical website operation. i'm going to put aside i think it's a lousy product. you know that. i oppose obama care. but i want to go back to this whole technical issue of the screw up around the website. question number one, mr. deinz has come in as the savior and putting this back together in some shape or form. why didn't they go to a guy like zients to quarterback this operation in the first place because, as i'm sure you would agree, the political catastrophic downfall of obama because of this website has been just completely off the charts. if they had done this right with a quarterback, you know, zients is a talented guy. why didn't they start there? >> you got me, larry. i agree with you completely that the past two months -- my job has been much more difficult because there that's been significant political fallout from fact that this website has been a mess. that the launch has been riddled with and made all our jobs much more difficult on the side of people who support obama care. no question whatsoever
. right now there is a serious problem given the obama care law. we need to help people. that's what i am talking about, not talking about the politics of it. i am talking about what is on the minds of millions of americans as they lose the coverage they can afford. people int to help this country when it comes to >> theealth care. governor of kentucky spoke to us this morning. kentucky is not the center of democratic politics in america, as mitch mcconnell observed. thousands of people are signing up in kentucky successfully. thousands of people are coming forward. thousands of people coming in new york and california all over this country who say they want the assurance. we haven't had much replaced. we have had a lot of repeal. three congresses ago he is talking about it. all we have had is repeal. there ought to be an alternative the other side offers. frankly, they have not done it. glad to move to another subject. i would tell him the majority of the american people in poll after poll say they don't want it repealed. they want assurance it is going to work, but they don't want it re
connection.gov crashed right after it launched. maryland, one of the first states to jump right on the obama care bandwagon. the rollout sputed along over the past nine weeks. they've only enrolled about 3,000 residents in the whole state of marry land. a very, very blue state. >> roughly 700 people have been able to enroll over the last week or so. they are saying -- >> maybe she'll get her job back. >> an improvement. right. maybe it will be a paid vacation kind of things. it doesn't sound like it. there have been calls for people like kathleen sebelius to lose her job. the president has yet to hold anything accountable at the federal level. we spoke with governor mike huckabee and he says the president is out of the loop and he needs to learn how to manage. >> i think people need to realize as bad as the website is, and it's clearly been a train wreck, it's nothing compared to what happens when people finally get into obama care and now we're learning that, for example, in states like washington state, nine times more people signed up for medicaid than to pay for insurance. good managers
works, what's popular from obama care and then you can put a different system around that. >> right. >> wait. >> the point is, guys, the point is we don't think this is working. and we should have an alternative to obama care that works. >> you should have an alternative that works and that want meets its goals. >> there's a lot of happy talk about well pre-existing conditions and pick the goodies off the shelf and leave the stuff that will make lives of people at the bottom of the ladder better. can i say two things. one getting back to the private-sector. if this was done in the private-sector people who have been fired. that's another important difference the way this is handled and the private-sector. secondly the next big test of obama care is not this website. it will get fixed. the next test is 7 million people signed up by the end of march. that's what we should be watching. >> it's not going to be happening. >> it's very hard. >> that's your way of saying it won't happen. >> i don't want to -- >> how do people get access to health care. it's not just republicans who didn't
be the biggest winners from senate democrats' decision to gut the minority party's filibuster rights on nominations their top priority, president obama's second-term regulations on climate change, is likely to have a better shot at surviving challenges once obama's nominees are confirmed for the crucial u.s. court of appeals for the district of columbia." end quote. and "the washington post" wrote this -- quote -- "democrats say the shift in the court will be especially important given obama's legislative proposals have little chance to prevail in the g.o.p.-controlled house. the most contentious issue likely to face the appeals court are climate change regulations being pursued by the e.p.a. the measures represent obama's most ambitious effort to combat climate change in his second term. coal-fired power plants are the key source of carbon emissions, at a time when such proposals have no chance of passage in congress." end of quote from "the post." the same "washington post" article acknowledged the importance of removing the judicial check on obamacare -- quote -- "the court is e
pleasure to follow the right honorable let's president obama attend the funeral of nelson mandela. as well as first lady michelle obama, laura bush, and hillary clinton. we have coverage of the memorial service tomorrow at 4:00 eastern on c-span2. a member of the agricultural and armed services committee. for the business community's we will be joined by john engler, president of the business roundtable. you can call. washington journal is live every day at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> carl levin came to the floor earlier today to discuss the 2014 program bill. in the past he has tried to take it in order to get the legislation passed. levin was joined by james in half and john mccain. this is 35 minutes. will beresident, senator withhold? >> morning businesses close. the senate will resume consideration. military activities and so forth and further purposes. left for the thanksgiving break, senator inhofe and i said that we would come to the senate floor today to update members on the status of the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2014. before the break, we spent a week on the
phone, as if obama care is somehow could be likened in any other way to the iphone. the reason they want to talk about that is because they are probably right. they probably will fix a whole lot of the glitches with the website. but what cannot be fixed is this idea that under a socialized european socialist program, health program where you have young, healthy people paying the way for older, sicker people are just not going to go along with it and it will collapse under its own weight. >> you know, the president has now reluctantly conceded that the promise about keeping the plan was wrong, polling data shows a majority thinks he deliberately lied about that. does it also now appear, charlie, that his other key promise about keeping your doctor may be just as false and misleading because most of these obama care plans exclude many doctors and hospitals in order to keep costs down? >> that -- the promise about keeping your doctor is every bit, if not more, untrue than the promise about keeping your health plan. because even if you get to keep your health plan, it's very possible that you won't
never lost a passenger. >> all right, jonathan. thank you. >>> we should tell you consumers are complaining that there is still plenty that is not going right with healthcare.gov this one day after the obama administration said the site was 90% functional and fixed. some users say it's still possible to think you are signed up but not get coverage. and at peak times of the day, just signing on was still a bit of a problem. mike viqueira is at the whitehouse for us and has the latest on this trouble site. mike, this was a big deadline for the administration over the weekend >> reporter: right. >> there seems to be plenty of work to do here. >> >> reporter: there is. there is good news/bad news really. you mentioned signing on. the administration was full of facts and figures over the laugh two days. saturday, they set november 30th as the goal whereby the quote, unquote vast majority of americans visiting the website would have a positive experience and some success. that would be a marked improvement over what we have seen over the course of the last two months ever since t
>>> an exclusive entire view with president obama thursday at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on msnbc. coming up right now, "the ed show," with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," live from new york. let's get to work. >>> we are gratified with the court's ruling today. >> now with bankruptcy imminent. >> breaking news out of detroit right now. >> no, no, not detroit! no! retirees marched in it front of the courthouse in protest. >> there are no surprises in that ruling. >> this was a difficult and painful decision. >> so business as usual in detroit. >> a chance, i think, to move forward with a clean slate. >> lots of misinformation surrounding this story. i'm setting the record straight here. >> have a human dimension, because there are pensions, retiree issue. retirees, pensioners. >> citizens are customers. >> rick, have you ever heard the expression, the customer is always right? >> i don't look at -- >> the consequences could be devastating, if you care about people. >> you know, when i said i was very pleased, i very specifically stayed away f
unilateral, one-year delay of obama care. just like in july right before the independence day holiday, the administration tried to hide the one-year delay of the business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew about the website problems well before the website launch. the administration tries to continue to hide problems on the back end of the website that deliver information and payments to insurers often as we now know incorrectly. the administration has tried to hide the security problems that exist with the website that one official called limitless prior to the website's launch. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that millions of americans would lose the coverage that they like. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will now lose access to the doctors, the pediatricians and perhaps even the hospitals that they choose. at this point, one has to ask, what else are they hiding? you know, while the white house wants to claim that the healthcare.gov is now working, we know that obamacare is s
pleased with the kind of response he's been getting from the obama administration about security. and depending on where you look, congressman, you know, people on the right to some extent say there was never even any thought to getting security in there. and people on the left say, you know, when i had a kid, should i have gotten rid of my kid when i saw a few glitches? no, you fix the glitches. it's a wide spectrum. what wept into the planning for security? >> well, unfortunately, not much. this isn't about wanting the site to fail itself. you're pushing people. people have lost their health care. they need to be able to access this site in order to get on and get a policy by january. so that's our concern. and what you've done is you've opened them up to a level of risk using this website i've never seen. standard site of this size would be about 500,000 lines of code, roughly, maybe a little less. the code in healthcare.gov is about 5 million lines of code. and it has never been thoroughly tested. and so we know of a very low level access problem and meaning that somebody cou
highways. but people are frustrated with the lack of leadership, they the thought obama would get a lot more done. and they're frustrated with the far right that seems obsessed with stopping the president rather than fixing problems. so it's a mixture here. >> i want to play a sound bite from newt gingrich. he was appraising nelson mandela on his facebook page last week and he got really nasty comments. let's play what he said. >> i was really surprised by it. calista had posted my statement on her facebook page and was amazed at some of the intensity, some of whom came back three you can four, five times repeating how angry they are. >> who are these people? >> very narrow minded minority that look at nelson mandela's life through the primp of communism. it's true that he did reach out to the communist party and it is true the com uhe nirt pathity were the only individuals looking to help mandela. but that was a very narrow minded piece of history. when he was freed back in 1991, very quickly dismissed the com u uhe nis party. so they're not looking at live as a whole. they refuse to s
.d.p. is moving in the right direction. if you were working for president obama, you would be out there saying i think this is a fabulous migration we're making. why are we so miserable? >> i would be scared to death. this victory lap is unwarranted. we're in the fifth year of a recovery now. touf have context. if you take the one-time revenue windfall within the two-thirds budget you're running at 800 billion. that's 5% of g.d.p. no one's abolished the business cycle. sooner or later down the road there's going to be -- >> even if we get to 300 billion we're going to turn around and go the other way? >> that's what the cbo projections show. they assume that we get to full employment in 2017 and stay there until eternity. if you have a more realistic, non-rosy scenario, the deficit gos back above $1 trillion. yet this increases the deficit and pretends they're going to offset it. >> who is being more stockman responsible, democrats or republicans? >> i think i would give a low grade to both sides. >> but which one is doing a better job? >> the lowest grade to the republicans to ryan. i think he'
have the government is trying to take away your right to own guns, your government is doing this and obama is doing that and obamacare's terrible. so those were the guys i want to talk to because they were the cries with leaflets, the i just to spice to them, the city where you? i said i'm an academic. i'm a researcher and sending research on these organizations, these ideas and trying to understand the guys about. the and studying men who believe this stuff. a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and said, asked the question. but i just had look, here's what i am. i don't get it. but here's my job. i wonder step how you guys view the world. i want to understand your worldview. look, you will not convince me and i will not convince you. that's off the table. what is on the table is i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> downward mobility, racial and gender equality. michael kimmel on the fears, anxieties and rage of "angry white men" sunday night at nine on "after words." part of booktv this weekend on c-span2. >> a house panel question federal energy regul
of the agreement right there. what's the reaction of the obama admks? what's been the reaction of the negotiators? do they have egg on their faces? do they look a little foolish from this agreement they've struck? we haven't heard anything from the current negotiators. there's also no stop in the missile testing. if iran has a nuclear weapon, if they have the fuel for a nuclear weapon, and if they have the capability to deliver that weapon through missile testing, i'd say they've got something. there's also no stopping terrorism from iran and there's no stop in human rights abuses. many americans aren't aware that there are americans who are eing held hostage today in iran. when ronald reagan dealt with the soviet union to try to end the cold war, ronald reagan handed the soviets a list of dissidents that he wanted freed. in order for him to begin these talks with the soviet union. he sent a signal to the soviet union. it said in america, we believe every american life counts. that sent a very strong message. in the case of the obama administration negotiators they didn't even bring it up. they d
and early 2009 when president obama took office, and not only has the trajectory been consistently in the right direction, if you will note when we first began positive job creation in the wake of the great recession, it was right around when the affordable care act past. this is obviously not a direct correlation. but we are moving the right direction. the information i cited in the beginning about the positive effects of the affordable care act for reduce in growth in health-care costs combined with the steady job creation we have seen for so many months reinforces a number of things. continuing to focus on those trends, making them move in the right direction, and increasing job growth even further. with that, i will take questions. >> on the president's travels to africa for the nelson mandela services, could you give us specific details of what the timing might be? there is a memorial service close to the funeral. and will the president invite former u.s. presidents to accompany him? >> thank you for those questions. i should have noted that for those of you that did not hear
